I have recently joined this write-a-blog challenge because the idea of creating a blog has crossed my mind before. I just have no idea how to start one and honestly I’m not sure if writing is for me. However here I am, taking on the challenge and started Learn2livelife. But the writing prompts I’ve been getting lately I find difficult to answer. Maybe because I have never ever thought of asking myself those questions. It’s too much pressure!
I started searching for other people who have taken up this same challenge, read their posts. Wow! They can write! Now I question myself whether I have made the right decision here. I feel out of bounce! I think I’m way in over my head! I feel like I’m in the wrong place here! However, I understand that these writing prompts are designed to get us to look deeper into ourselves. And I have been doing that, and it feels good to start questioning myself again in a more meaningful way and then try to find my answers. But then it makes me feel sad because I’m realizing that I have let myself go. I seem to have stopped living with passion and excitement in life. It’s really sad! Anyway, I can get hung up on that idea or use that instead to push me to find what will make me feel alive again.
So going back to the question, What’s my elevator pitch?
To help me answer that question, I read this article 4 Steps to Crafting, Testing & Perfecting Your ‘Everyday’ Elevator Pitch by the late Scott Dinsmore. And here are the guiding questions mentioned in it:
- What am I excited about?
- Why am I excited about it?
- How will it help people? Who does it serve?
- How does it uniquely tie into my story, passions, talents and/or experience?
- Why do I care and why should the world care?
With all that in mind, I came up with my own elevator pitch.
I help others find joy in their lives by learning to live intentionally.
What am I excited about it?
I am right now in the same boat, I want to change, and help other people see that it can be done.
Why am I excited about it?
Because I’d like to see if I can push myself out of my comfort zone to apply this new found principle of mine. Finding and trying things out for myself and then sharing my experiences and things I’ve learned to the world I think is quite exciting!
How will it serve people? Who does it serve?
I’m a stay-at-home mom and I have been feeling stuck in a long time, if only I learn to look at things in a different perspective, life will be so much more exciting. So, I can only imagine how many stay-at-home moms out there, or working moms or dads or really anybody who may be feeling and thinking the same way as I am because it’s so easy to fool ourselves into thinking that what we’re doing is enough, because it’s the norm, it’s acceptable. So I’m going to push myself to learn to live more intentionally and then share my experiences to the world hoping that others will choose to follow through.
How does it uniquely tie into my story, passions, talents and/or experience?
I am in this season of life where I thought things are just going smoothly, you know, raising a family, taking care of home, and all the things a young family should be doing, but in reality it’s lacking. So here I am, on a quest to finding what’s missing in my life.
Why do I care and why should the world care?
Because we only have one life, we only have one shot at it. We have to make the best out of it because in the end, we don’t want to have any regrets. Besides, we all know that there is so much more that the world has to offer if we are willing to step up and seize it.
